Title

SUBSTITUTE - Creating Section 28.069 to create the Regional Mixed Use (RMX) District and amending portions of Madison General Ordinances 28.021, 28.061, 28.062, 28.141, 28.151, 28.182 to add relevant provisions related to the newly created RMX District.

Body

DRAFTER’S ANALYSIS:    This ordinance creates a new zoning district, the Regional Mixed Use (RMX) District.  This district is intended to provide opportunities for high-intensity mixed-use centers supporting a variety of multifamily housing options and commercial activities that serve the needs of the region. These areas typically include large-scale sites supportive of multistory buildings and should be the most intensively developed areas in the city outside of the downtown. Staff believes this district will fill a gap not covered by the other mixed-use and commercial districts.  As part of creating the RMX district, this ordinance also amends various existing provisions of the Zoning Code to add regulations pertaining to the RMX, including, importantly, determining what uses are allowed in the district either as permitted or conditional uses.  The Planning Division and Zoning Administrator will provide a thorough explanation of the planning and zoning policy related implications of this new district.

 

This Substitute was necessary to make changes to the ordinance suggested during the Legislative Process, as summarized in the Zoning Administrator’s Report related to this Substitute.
